I did a search on maxbimmer didn't see anything about m4's so hopefully this isn't a re-post.

I dunno, I think it would have to grow on me a bit, I still like the e46 better

nice find....good read too...i think they will make the coupe a 4 series...just to make things less complicating with the i, is, xi, ci, and so on.

edit: the 3 series coupe might be a 4 series but it might not.

Now that I've seen it, and looked at that sideshot a few times, I think I really like it, looks sick. Looks like an Aston Martin a bit.

Those are way better tail lights. BMW are going to sell lots if they fit on all E90s.

That is a repost/old news. There will be no M4, they will stick with the M3 instead.

definetly no m4 it was just an idea and we won't see the new m3 until the middle to end of 07(can't wait)but they will more than likely have a four door model if not in the fist year by the second.

That's not even a real car and won't ever come into production.

Also, the up and coming M4 is (supposed to be) a 4 door, not 2.

No shit! I can tell you without reading further that there will be no 4 series - that would just confuse the brand.

Why rename the successful coupe a 4? wouldn't make any sense at all.

^^ Agreed...also It would make 2 many series...1 series, 3 series, 5 series, 6 series, 7 series, and 8 series....ummm What about E90 M3/4.....

We don't have "car jockey's".

Also, I do attend meetings and managers do tell us info they hear from dealer principals who get it straight from BMW Canada.

why would bmw name it the M4, there is no 4 series, it makes no sense. when you call it an M3 it makes sense because it is a 3 series but from the motorsport divison.

IF it is confirmed, it won't be out for quite some time. The new M3 (and M6 for that matter) won't be here for a while.

I went to the BMW dealership on the mountain once, near that mall. Is that where you work?

because of the addition of the new 6 series, BMW wanted to change their nomenclature a bit to reflect the body style of each model. even number for coupe/roadster, and odd number for sedan/estate/SAV. but it seems like they drop the plane because 3-series has quite a history and is considered to be an automotive icon to many petrolheads, and thus it simply doesn't worth all the effort to try to establish 4-series' image all over again.

so in another word, 2 door 3-series will still be called the 3-series. *wave*

I work at Budds in Hamilton. You could say it's near a mall, but not right next to one.

The one I went to had a maseratti in the show room, with a light creamy leather interior. It was sweet.

In my personal opinion.... the name "M3" has too much value attached to it to change to M4...

Wicked indeed. There was a younger fellow with short brown(?) hair (in the 5'8" - 5'11" range) working there when I stopped by, asked me about my 330. Cool guy, you know him?
